when the baltimore ravens host the cleveland browns. jason carroll is here. the league had to move quickly. >> a lot of relief there. >> this was spiraling out of control. >> absolutely. we all remember what happened during that monday night game. 70,000 calls to the nfl because of that one particular play. there was definitely a lot of incentive to get back to the table and get this thing fixed. both sides working late into the night to make sure they could get a deal that both sides could be happy with. reaction coming in early this morning. the nfl commissioner basically saying this agreement supports long-term reforms that will make officiating better, the teams, players and fans want and deserve both consistency and quality in officiating. also coming in to us, reaction coming in also from the referee association president saying we are glad to be getting back on the field for this week's game. it could not have come any sooner, especially with tonight's game with the browns versus the ravens. >> this is an eight-year deal, which sun precedented. who got the better end of the
night. the crew got a standing ovation from the crowd in baltimore before the ravens/browns game. football and therefore life as we know it nearly unraveled during prechaotic weeks with those replacement referees. roger goodell apologized to fans for the lockout but insisted the league and the referees were close to a deal even without that debacle last monday night. >> i believe we would have reached an agreement this week regardless of monday night or sunday night or the past weekend. everybody was to the point of getting this concluded. >> so how did the real guys do? cnn's nischelle turner is live in los angeles. what did unthink? any bad calls? >> reporter: well, it depends on who you're rooting for basically, john, you know, yes, the refs -- the real refs got a standing ovation last night and everyone was breathing a sigh of relief that they were back on the field but you know what, it did not take long for the boo birds to come out. it was about four minutes into the game in the first quarter when the refs made a holding call on the ravens, and you heard the boo birds so i
for a call in that one. >> that one went in favor of the home team in baltimore. that call happened to be correct. here it is on "sunday night football." however, if the credibility of the replacement officials is what it is and it's only getting worse by the week, if you have one of these, even if the call happens to be correct go against a home team, like lupica makes a great point, with incivility being what it is and the fan behavior we see with drinking and barnyard chants on a perceived missed call there, could be a very dangerous situation if one of these calls goes against a home team. >> real, real quickly. belichick, the penalty against him should be or will be what is this. >> a substantial fine. i don't think they will suspend him. >> bob costas, thank you. >> you know what annoys me even more than the replacement officials. >> what? >> getting up early to talk about this. >> the whining, savannah. >> once a year or something. every day for us. >>> let's move to politics now. president obama and mitt romney are fine-tuning their message to voters with the first president
. yes, the fans gave the returning refs a standing ovation before the baltimore ravens took the field to play the cleveland browns last night. carlos diaz from hln sports was lucky enough to be at the game. good morning, carlos. you survived. >> by the way, you mentioned the money hoon stage. this is all out blind love going on right now, carol. let me tell you one thing. what i learned by talking to ravens fans, they hate two things, pittsburgh steelers fans and refs. let me say it. last night when jean saratori, the lead official walked out on the field and got a standing ovation they cleared a referee from pittsburgh. what is going on in the nfl right now? made the three and a half hour drive and cheered when he walks out. i have to tell you, you couldn't have scripted it better than a hollywood movie. tipping the cap there. looking great. fit. good head of hair and the crowd cheering referees now that they're back and the replacements are gone. >> what makes it stranger, ray lewis came out and hugged a referee. >> yeah. the funny thing, i talked to so many fans before the game. wh
unprecedented happened on thursday night in baltimore, deb. fans actually gave a standing ovation to nfl officials. that's how bad this has gotten. monday night, of course, the botched call, changed the outcome of the seahawks-packers game in favor of seattle. that kind of led to a public outcry. this cannot stand. 17 hours of negotiations between the nfl and the officials on tuesday. finally late wednesday night, they had an agreement in principle. now finally the agreement has been formalized. the referees are back on the field and sunday's games will be fully staffed by the proper officials. >> you know, what's interesting is that one of sticking points is that nfl owners wanted the referees to become full-time nfl employees. a lot of these refs hold other jobs. and that was one of the reasons that the owners were so unwilling to compromise. why? i mean, these are very dedicated, professional referees. why should that technically be an issue? >> this is one of the things that gave the referees a really strong position in the bargaining. take the most famous referee, ed hochuli. he wor
night as the browns and ravens met in baltimore. chip reid at mnt bank stadium in baltimore. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. this stadium was literally rocking last night. the fans were emphatic. not because the home team, the baltimore ravens won. it was also because the real referees are finally back. >> i'm sure all of you know by now, the regular officials are back. >> reporter: the return of the referees came with an unprecedented standing ovation, as the browns and ravens got ready to rumble, fans and players warmly welcomed the veteran crew, as they took to the field for the first time this season. >> very good to see you guys. >> thank you for your support too. it means a lot. >> reporter: kickoff, less than 24 hours after the official union reached a tentative deal with the nfl, marking the end to a bitter three-month lockout. >> the refs were terrific. >> first flag of the first quarter. >> reporter: referee comeback couldn't come soon enough for teams and fans. over the past three weeks, they have witnessed a long list of controversial calls by replacement offi
but the regular officiating crews return to work tonight for a game between the cleveland browns and baltimore ravens. more now with mike pesca of npr, who's been covering the story and joins me from new york. well, mike, this was obviously not your usual labor struggle. how much did the public outcry really force the issue in the end? >> well, we just heard goodell saying it didn't, but it had to have provided leverage. here's why i think it worked or why that touchdown/interception was a major factor. it provided a cost to the whole discussion. because throughout it, the "we blame roger goodell" or "football fans blame roger goodell" but it was the owners pushing roger goodell not to settle with the officials and they could always claim "why do we have to settle with officials? they don't affect the bottom line? no one watches the game to watch a referee, they say, and maybe it's true when there's a lockout or labor strike with a factory you can always do the math and figure out how much it's costing you. so in this case the owners maybe didn't have a cost. but what that touchdown did, what
in his team's game against baltimore, he grab and official's arm. >> yeah. i'm not going to comment about that to you. you saw the game. i mean what did we have, 30 penalties called in the game. >> reporter: 10 penalties. baltimore had 14. it's not the number of penalties that has coaches, players and fans so frustrated. it is the questionable ones. and the list is growing. >> they're trying to do the best job they can. they're just not qualified to handle the pace and the speed of an nfl game. >> reporter: in the san francisco/minnesota game, the officials twice allowed the 48 patriots line backer brandon 49ers to challenge calls, even though they had no time-outs left. this looks like a catch on the 1 yard line by miami's anthony pisano, that's what the refs called it. look again. he actually lost the ball when he hit the ground. p-- ra they' nee wor some of the replacement refs come from the college level and the indoor arena league. the nfl turned to them after they locked out the regular refs .hey locked out the regular refs i and some see little reason for the nfl to cave when fans

tonight in baltimore. what did it come down to in the end? >> i think a couple of things. first of all, the nfl could not send replament officials to green bay sunday. i think everybody in the league ew that. i mean, this had to get done this week. and i think at the end of e day, the oiaet t retain a pension system through 2016 that 89% of corporate america doesn't have anymore. okay? and they're part-time employees. this pension was important to thofficials. they get to retain it for the next five seasons. and the ls to hire a taxi squad of officials that over the next few years they can replace underperforming officials. >> peter, peel back the curtain a little bit because you talked to all the principals involved here. for the first couple of weeks, did roger goodell say to himself, we're going t weather vewobout this? >> yes. >> and did it come down to monday night? >> i think a lot of this was monday night. remember the way he thinks. he's thinking two, three, four years down the road, his main go in this was to make se fis to replace se underperforming officials down the road s
. fans on both sides of the aisle hope this dispute is settled soon. the baltimore ravens were given a one-point lead over the new england patriots and a series of rules that have been botched are driving fans and players crazy. all this because of the labor dispute between the nfl and the regular referees that began when the referees were locked out in june. the referees want more money asking for increasing their salaries from $149,000 to $189,000. compare that to the median nfl player's salary, $770,000 a year. it's important to remember the average nfl playing career is only three-and-a-half years. so these are not full-time jobs for them. the nfl wants to make the refs full-time. the legal also wants to move them from a pension system to a 401(k). but this the context of a business that brings in $9.5 billion a year, it seems relatively solvable. an nfl referee for 25 years who worked two super bowls told me he doesn't blame the replacement refs who have been pulled from small colleges, high schools and lower-level pro leagues. what were they really not ready for at this level o
. this after a disputed field goal gave the baltimore raven a one-point win over the patriots and a series of botched calls and misapplied rules that have driven coaches, players and fans crazy. all this because of a labor dispute between the nfl and its regular referees that began when the league locked out the refs in june. the referees want more money, asking for more than the nfl's offer to increase their average salaries from $149,000 a year to $189,000. compare that to the median nfl player's salary, $770,000 a year. it's important to remember the average nfl playing career is only three and a half years. and most of the refs have other careers. so these aren't full-time jobs for them. the nfl wants to make the refs full-time and to add more refs so the average referee would make less money. the league also wants to move them from a pension system to a 401(k). but in the context of a business that brings in $9.5 billion a year, it seems relatively solvable. red cashin, an nfl referee for 25 years through two super bowls doesn't blame the replacement refs. what were they really not re
